I have an African gander and an Embden goose, are they able to produce offspring naturally? If so does any body have a picture of this hybrid, just for a heads up for what the gosling would look like in the spring?

Thank you for your time

Any domestic geese can cross, the resulting offspring are just crosses which can also breed and produce offspring.

To get a hybrid you would have to cross a domestic goose with a wild type goose to get a hybrid (sterile) offspring. For example a Canadian bred to an Embden.

I had no idea that wild geese bred to domesticated geese would produce sterile offspring. Fascinating. Learn something new every day. I guess I can take the rest of the day off.
